Includes questions that were asked of Alaska and other Muslims participating and deciding cultural information exchange, and the Cobra district or Saudi Arabia.
The questions are being asked by American soldiers who participated, and the Desert Shield Desert Storm operation.
The questions were asked in May 1991.
And before I say anything about myself, I like to walk

fact that Islamic law
is the law of the land
makes a profound difference between the peoples of this area and peoples of other neighboring countries who may have similar ethnic roots
and may have similar religious conditions. However, the law of Islam has not been implemented
in those other countries, whereas it has been here because the seaside spoke off. That safety, that sense of
lack of worry over crying is a direct result of the implementation of Islamic law, which I'm sure you've heard of, you know, from a point of view of it being

you are treated lightly in the society,

individual human life is not given value over the

is primarily that of a mother.
The woman has to be only a mother and
father mother was that particular role.
a woman is encouraged to be educated, because they do believe that education of a woman is education over generations
an encouragement for education, however, that education is
separate but equal.
Girl schools, girls University,
boys schools and boys University
at one point in time,
it is, maintain
the separation between males and females on a general scale.
And the dress code also represents an aspect of that separation, in the sense that
a man who is dealing with a woman
on the basis of her intelligence, not on the basis of her
if you want to sell a car in America,
the best way is suppose
on top of the car,
you know, you want to sell a razor blade, then you have to have a woman somehow there when the man is shaving, you know, either crushing your hand or something like the whole way in which a product is sold in America, and the West is sold through using the female as
a sexual object.
What's advise you as opposed to that fundamental, the woman is not a sexual lawsuit was she the role of sex in within marriage,
the role of sex, even marriage, sex outside of marriage. And his wife says the person commits.
A person who commits fornication is
a met a woman who commits adultery is
So, this law can only function reasonably in a society where things which will invite
making the law exist. So a woman is covered, if that's what is required is somebody suffer a face of hands, he wears loose clothing that doesn't accentuate
And even the male
are encouraged to wear loose clothing. This is why the common dress is a long toy, like Rosa demandware. Also, they're not allowed to wear the kind of inside holdings folder by the practice is also credited for males.
And females, nothing for the protection of the society as a whole. Because the goal of the society the sheets,
it doesn't deny your effects. But it says that sex should be within a particular context, which is controlled, so that it doesn't harm the society. We don't have illegitimate children, we don't have the spread of diseases like aids and hajis. And
this happens, when there is what they call promiscuity. And anybody does it with anybody anyhow.
So this is the goal is not to, to hide the woman from the society and prevent her from playing a role in the society that says no, she has a role. She's encouraged into medicine in
various fields, which helps to develop and build a society. But at the same time,
because of the fact that
we recognize that women and
that women are weaker than men, physically.
Physically, they're weaker
when the top High School sprinter, you know, as fast as a female Olympian.
The differences between males and females typically generally, is a reality. And that's why when they talk about the 100,000 lives in America last year, they're not talking about women, raping men.
The society tries to protect the weaker members of society, children, systems, to protect them, and also protect women also. And this just code is part of that system for protecting the woman as well as protecting the supply and the jungles of the middle. Protect the society from the harms can come from
excessive promotion of the sexual aspects of human beings.

I know I sound like

or walking behind you know, Islam does not require a woman to walk behind.
Okay, sitting in the back of the buses, what you have to understand is when buses first were brought in the kingdom, when they first started with buses, they put the women in the front of the buses.
In Islam, they tried to maintain the segregation between males and females.
So they had a separate session for women in the front of the bus. And the men who were
when they found, they found that, of course, when the women were put in the front, the men all behind them, they were obeying the woman, so they thought it was better to avoid this. Because the woman in the back of the buffer was, for convenience sake, and protection of women. And we know in Bangkok, since recently that the country has decided to have separate mothers for men and separate mothers for women, because the women were under constant attack. And so a woman left to go to work in rush hour is in any of the major cities where they're crowded buses, I mean, they know what they go through. So to try to protect them in our separate sessions given to them on the bus initially

where females are in generally speaking, these institutions are suffering.
So you don't really have much of a situation where females are ordering Neil to do certain things not very much in the medical field

something devastating. And what we're seeing is that, how do you deal with that, when I say that to you that by blocking the women in Rome,
we're saying that the role of the women in the society in society has changed to be asked to come under some control for the benefit of the society as a whole. And in the society here, where women are given opportunity for education, the opportunity
